So I picked up an 85 190E 2.3 4cyl a week or two ago, and the car seems to run quite well. However, I do not have a simple owners manual for the car (Have a Haynes manual). would anyone know where I can get one so I can figure out how to change the time on the clock, work the stereo, work the cruise control? Also the dash boards is badly cracked, I just swapped out a front seat in the car so you can assume that my mechanic skills go that far, how difficult would it be to replace a dashboard? So, owners's manual, how to work cruise control (there is a lever next to turn signal/wiper arm that must do something. do I push pull...) and tips on replacing the dash. Thanks!

The clock is changed via the knob on the right side of the instrument cluster. The knob on the left resets the trip odometer. You can order an owners manual from Mercedes (Part No. S-6550-5588-13), although I have seen them for sale on E-Bay. The cruise control is operated by the stalk on the left of the steering wheel. Push up to actuate and to accelerate. Push down to decelerate. Push in to disengage and pull forward to resume. Instead of replacing the dashboard, consider a Dashtop from Palco, that glues onto the top of the old dash for about $100. The only drawback is that you will have to trim holes for the speakers since on the 85, they are accessed from the top of the dash.
